Ok so this morning before work I’m going through Twitter when I come across this thread.
Allegedly a Q400 plane has took off unauthorised and a pair of F15s have been scrambled to give chase.
The plane is allegedly stolen and the ‘Pilot’ done an a few rolls and reckless flying. Details are very sketchy at the moment. I can’t find
anything on any news site.
The F15s were from the 142 Fighter Wing. The incident occurred over Seattle.
There may be a crash site.
Quote from Tyler Rogoway twitter account:
So 142nd FW F-15s scrambled to Seattle and have intercepted what is supposedly a Q400 that may have taken off without permission. Details could
totally change but that’s what I have so far. The scramble was 100% legit over land to Seattle. Incident ongoing...
Getting clear of the aircraft after a sudden maneuver probably. One flies next to the aircraft fairly close. If it made a sudden maneuver, he'd have
to react pretty quick to get clear. Fastest way to do that is up.
